Hello all. This is my first official post. Yep, another newbie. Anyway, I know this a loaded question but I have to ask anyway. I've read a lot of professional advice on here so I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm struggling with capturing my amps true character when I record. Just to let you know what my chain consists of,,,,ESP MII with Duncan SH6's in the bridge and PAF's in the neck position - 5150 ll - BBE 362 in the loop - into a Marshall 4X12 loaded with G12T-75's. I use an SM57 into a Behringer XENYX 1002FX Mixer/Pre into a MAudio Delta 44 sound card. I'm not even at the sound card yet in the chain though. I'm trying to get my tone down before it reaches that. I've tried pushing the mic right up to the grill cloth in the center of the cone, off center, between the cone and the speakers edge, etc. Anyone have any suggestions? I play metal and want to capture the grind and low end chug this amp is very capable of producing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
